Avalon Hill preparing another course of Garfield

With the semi-recent rerelease of Roborally, and his appearance at Magic Worlds 2004, it seems Richard Garfield will continue to dabble in Wizards’ business. I’m all for it, though I have to admit to being a bit undecided on his upcoming game. Garfield’s next Avalon Hill boardgame, Rocketville, hits next month (as today’s press release reminds us), and has the appearance of a bidding game with a humorous slant. From what I can gather, 3-5 players race to gain the most popularity from various districts as each competes to become mayor of the city. If you’re curious like I am, you can get a look at Rocketville on March 10, and pick it up for $35.
